Just a...

CLEMENTINE: Joel, I'm not a concept. I want you to just keep that in your head. Too many guys think I'm a concept or I complete them or I'm going to make them alive, but I'm just a fucked-up girl who is looking for my own peace of mind. Don't assign me yours.

JOEL: I remember that speech really well.

CLEMENTINE: I had you pegged, didn't I?

JOEL: You had the whole human race pegged.

CLEMENTINE: Probably.

JOEL: I still thought you were going to save me. Even after that.

CLEMENTINE: I know.

I can't be sure but I think that the world might not need any movies besides this one.

I've seen it many, many times and I still always get new insights from it.

Eric, I'm quite certain you may be correct. I watched it again last night and yes, I got something new from it. It's one of those rare pieces of art that seems to meet you in your life and shed some light on where you are.

Sorry my dear Joshua. I know. I know. Remember the first time we watched this together? And the, oh, I don't know, twenty times we've watched it since? So many tears. Oh so many tears.

Chihoe, darling, we cannot officially be bestest friends until we've watched this together. It's one of those films that seems to bond the watchers together in an unexplainable way.
